Tooth Extraction

Why Teeth Are Extracted

Teeth may be removed because of:

  • Severe tooth decay or infection
  • Extra teeth that are blocking other teeth from growing in (supernumerary teeth)
  • Severe gum disease
  • Orthodontic treatment
  • Non-restorable teeth
  • Fractured teeth
  • Cosmetic reasons

Extractions Followed By Preservation

Types of Extractions

There are two forms of tooth extraction: Surgical and Simple. The type you need will depend on if the tooth has erupted out of the gum tissue or if it is still below the gumline. Teeth which have erupted are removed using the Simple technique. Those that remain below the gumline are removed Surgically.

Regardless of the reason a tooth must be pulled, extractions are only reserved for cases in which no other treatment option will cure the infection or problem.
